My name is Laurence and i am 12 years of age.When i bought this book i wasn't quite sure what to expect. Once i began to read it i was addicted and i coundn't put it down! I liked his list of equipment and food ind found it quite amusing! Although i was not sure about his tin pea and ham soup! the book was written like a diary with interesting pictures on each page.I found this book very interesting and i would recommend it to all ages from 3 to 103! My overall rating: 10/10

'Seafort' records an extraordinary project experienced by the artist Stephen Turner. You follow his thoughts and activities as recorded in his diary, a glimpse at both the mundanity and beauty of his daily tasks and of the debris he found on the offshore fort. I liked the many photographs, particularly those showing the practicalities of getting onto the fort. There is also a great 1960s photograph of the fort intact with it's 7 towers joined by walkways. The book includes a thoghtful essay on solitude which I felt really complemented the project. An interesting, attractive, thoughtful and sometimes humorous book. I enjoyed it immensely.

I followed this project as it unfolded and found it compelling. I found the idea of an artist living alone at sea completely captivating. The second world war structures are visible from the sea's edge along the Kent coast, you can see them from the beach at Whitstable. They look like tiny mushrooms on the horizon. I'm so pleased that this book has been produced, it's fantastic. You get to see the interior of these amazing abandoned relics and this contemporary art project brings them to life. The book is beautifully put together and I thoroughly recommend it. The Seafort is brought to life through the eyes of a contemporary artist - enjoy!

If you enjoy art, then Seafort may be for you. The book is a diary of an artist's time spent in solitude on one of the Seaforts off the Kent coast, and it also dips into the history of the forts - for those more interested in the World War II aspect, there are various websites that offer much more detail on that area. The book has some decent images and the writing is both thoughtful and amusing in parts. It's either an interesting little diary, or a decent book of photos, or both depending on what you're looking for. Either way, it's worth a look.

I really enjoyed this book - I'd heard about the project from friends living in Whitstable and have always been fascinated by the seaforts - they are such a presence on the sea horizon. It is lovely to have a record of a project of this kind that deals with isolation and solitude, in a place I am very unlikely to ever see for myself, and to read the artist's thoughts on the project, and the experience itself.
